Hip Hop Chess Federation
The HIP HOP CHESS FEDERATION (HHCF) 501(c)(3) is one of the world’s most unique programming initiatives addressing youth ages 6 – 18. HHCF Founder and Executive Director, Adisa Banjoko, continues to bolster his successful, well publicized and well documented approach to helping youth embrace and apply alternative strategies to obstacles in life by providing an engaging, interactive program that will help them cultivate the necessary life skills for success.
Since 2006, HHCF has introduced and taught thousands of youth the game of chess not only as a game of wit but also as a metaphor for the importance of incorporating strategic thinking as a necessary process for making the right moves in life. Over the years, HHCF has broaden its scope of programs to include performing arts, entrepreneurship and other creative outlets. Coupled with the practical philosophies and disciplined teaching of martial arts and framed in the many positive, but often underappreciated aspects of HIP-HOP Culture, HHCF continues to expand its educational outreach efforts throught the United States. HHCF has spent many years deepening the valuable relationship it has forged with local schools and various community based organizations by being able to provide life enriching programming in a safe setting to youth who otherwise have limited access to high quality alternative learning, culture and arts experiences. The HHCF uses its unique program as a platform to promote the idea that every young person is High In Potential and has the capacity to Help Other People (HIP-HOP framed differently). It is through this framework that a stronger community consciousness and academic achievement will be created and realized.
